<p><b>'A maelstrom of palace intrigue, interstellar back-stabbing, devious plots, treachery, blistering action, ferocious confrontations – and a heroine for the ages... Enthralling, edge-of-your-seat stuff hurtling along at warp speed. Grab!' <i>Kirkus Reviews</i> STARRED REVIEW. </b></p><p><i>It has been eight centuries since the beacon system failed, sundering the heavens as it collapsed. Without beacons the void between stars is navigable only by the slow crawl of knnu driven argosies. Rising from the ashes of the collapse, cultures have fought, system-by-system, for control of the few remaining beacons. </p><p>The Republic of Chaonia is one such polity. Surrounded by the Yele League and the vast Phene Empire, they have had to fight for their existence. After decades of conflict, Queen-Marshal Eirene has brought the Yele to heel, binding them into subservience. </p><p>Now it is time to deal with the Empire. </i></p><p>Princess Sun, daughter and heir to the queen-marshal, has come of age. In her first command, she has driven a Phene garrison from the beacons of Na Iri. </p><p>Growing up in the shadow of her mother has been no easy task. The queen-marshal, having built Chaonia into a magnificent republic against impossible odds, is both revered and feared. While Sun may imagine that her victorious command will bring further opportunity to prove herself, it will in fact place her on the wrong side of court politics. There are those who would like to see Sun removed as heir, or better yet, dead. </p><p>To survive, while the battle between empires ignites all around her, the princess must rely on her wits and companions: her biggest rival, her secret lover, and a dangerous prisoner of war. </p><p>Hold on tight. This is the space opera you've been waiting for. </p>
